To do the Brandt-Daroff exercise:

  1. Start in an upright, seated position.
  2. Move into the lying position on one side with your nose pointed up at about a 45-degree angle.
  3. Remain in this position for about 30 seconds (or until the vertigo subsides, whichever is longer), then move back to the seated position.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 on the other side.
